Sonu Nigam is one of the most popular singers in India. And there’s a common tradition where we see singers and actors passing on the same to their sons and daughters. The kids of stars are expected to become stars and so is the expectation with singers and their kids. However, Sonu Nigam has some other plans for his son.
In a recent interview with Times Now, Sonu Nigam stated that he doesn’t want his son Neevan to become a singer and has already got him out of India. The singer also shared that Neevan is more interested in gaming and lives in the UAE.
The publication quoted Sonu Nigam saying, “Frankly, I don’t want him to be a singer, at least not in this country. Anyway, he does not live in India anymore, he lives in Dubai. I have already got him out of India. He is a born singer but he has another interest in life.” The singer added that his son is excellent at Fortnite. “As of now, he is one of the topmost gamers of the United Arab Emirates (UAE). He is number 2 in Fortnite. There is a game called Fortnite and he is the top gamers in the Emirates. He is a brilliant child with a lot of qualities and talent. And I don’t want to tell him what to do. Let’s see what he wants to do himself,” he said.
Earlier this year, Sonu had accused T-Series’ Bhushan Kumar of being the ‘mafia’ in the music industry. “Tune galat aadmi se panga le liya, samjha (You have messed with the wrong person, understand),?” he said in a long video shared on social media. Sonu claimed Bhushan planted articles about him in the media and persuaded musicians to give interviews against him. The singer warned him to back off or he would expose him.
